It's correct that I like Silvestri's entry best, especially the awesome finale (it's a pity that due to time constraints these cues didn't make the CD). However, I find that The Scorpion King is a *****-score as well. It has some wonderful harmonic momentum in it's second half. And to cover all three scores, I also adore certain parts of Goldsmith's original. You simply cannot beat the angry old man when he's steamrollering you with the combined force of French Horns and African percussion!

Enough rambling!

Tatata, Christian
